If you’ve been searching for a no excuse 1970 GTO, with the Ram Air IV engine, this is your chance to get a top-notch GTO that will bring home a trophy at the next GTOAA or Pontiac Nationals.
This car started life in Michigan, but was pampered and very well cared for. The frame-off restoration was performed by well-know restorer Dick Lackey and completed in 2012. Once finished this car has only accumulated enough miles to make sure that everything works properly or going to Pontiac car shows.
The car was completely disassembled and stripped to bare metal. The frame was removed and the entire drivetrain was rebuilt. The body of this vehicle was gone over from front to back and the body fit is laser straight and better than new. Once the body was prepared, it was given a fresh coat of the correct Pepper Green (code 48), using the best modern DuPont base coat clear-coat paint. The frame was also stripped and all chassis components were replaced and refinished in the correct original factory finishes.
While the engine was out of the car, it was sent out and completely rebuilt. The original 400 Ram Air engine (WS) block was honed and new pistons, rings and bearings installed. The crank was checked and lightly refinished. The original Ram Air “614” cylinder heads were checked and given a valve job, along with new valves and valve springs. Everything was reassembled and the entire engine assembly was given a coat of the correct Pontiac silver-blue engine paint.
No stone was left unturned and the interior was completely redone with nothing but the best of correct materials. All instruments and gauges were checked for operation and repaired or replaced, if necessary. All wire harnesses were replaced with new. The restoration on this GTO is 100% “factory correct”, right down to the correct T-3 headlamps and original style Firestone white stripe tires.
Since completion the GTO has received numerous prestigious awards including: the 2012 Pontiac-Oakland Club – Gold points judging of 389 out of 400 points and again in 2013, with a score of 397 out of 400 and received the prestigious Senior Gold award. Also in 2013 the car was judged at the GTOAA National Convention and was awarded the Concours Gold Award. It comes with a detailed photo album of the restoration, PHS paperwork and copies of all awards
This is a top notch car that is worthy of going to a good home! It will make a “star” addition to any car collection.
